This was our favourite area of Vail. A reasonable percetage of runs were groomed and after mid morning the lift lines are not too bad.

Back bowls at Vail sound intimidating. Blue Sky has two runs that are usually groomed: Big Rock Park and Grand Revie. Both runs are long and just fun for an intermediate skier who likes cruising.

Perfect for a bluebird day. Amazing views from the top of snowy peaks for miles. Great skiing. Difficult to get back from without a guide or good knowledge of the slopes.

Varied ski terrain to suit all levels of ability. Particularly enjoyed it when there was a bit of powder around.

We visited this part of vailmmountain many times during our stay; we like its interesting slopes; and the servece area ( restaurant, restrooms; deck and beautiful view at the top) ; in such place are two grills in which we prepared our own roasted food in a very easy way

Limitless acreage of terrain for all skills. If you love skiing / snowboarding but are getting bored on the trails you must explore BSB!

Beautiful views, great snow and have the mountain to yourself if you ski mid week. Ticketing system is super efficient and easy. Huge mountain - so many great runs. We were very lucky with weather - clear and sunny. Bring sun protection - I was lucky and 'borrowed' some from someone on the mountain. Village is stunning.

Some of the most beautiful landscape in the world filled with powdered snow to glide down through. Must see.

I am an intermediate skier so it was too aggressive for me. But it was amazing. The views are spectacular.
